Will stay again

The Watazen ryokan is very clean, convenient and service is great. It is also very spacious. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It is very near to the Nishiki Market. Although we only stay a night but we have wonderful time.

Great Stay, Very Good Location

Watazen Ryokan is such a great place to stay in if visiting Kyoto. We booked room packages that come with dinner served in your room. They have what they call the "F-Kaiseki" dinner (a multiple course dinner; "F" for foreign; the kaiseki dinner is tailored a bit to suit foreigner palate), or a shabu-shabu (hot pot) dinner, both of which they will prepare for you inside your room.

Very pleased with our stay

Amazing authentic stay

by vvn l on 27 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed here for three days and were glad we did. The experience was refreshing and we left with great respect for the Japanese culture. The staff were particularly professional and friendly - they really go an extra mile to ensure the stay was as pleasant as possible. The bath house were empty when we visited so we were lucky in that respect - not sure how we could have coped being naked in front of others. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend to friends and family

A real gem!

Excellent staff and service, strategic location, spacious room, tradtional vibe with modern amenities and a great onsen- everything you ask and wish for is here. This ryokan is highly recommended! It is also not as expensive as other ryokans, so great value for money.
